Headlines By Mrs Sharon ColeI would like to thank all parents for your support this term. We had almost 100% attendance at Parents’ Meetings this week. We also appreciate all the feedback that we have received via the questionnaires. It has been such a positive start to the new academic year and I hope that you enjoy some precious family time next week. Football Tournament Yesterday Mrs Thornton took two teams to Evesham United Football Club to participate in an inter-school competition involving our nine “Cluster” schools which all feed into Bredon Hill Middle School. The children played brilliantly and were a credit to the school, showing a superb attitude. Both teams came third! We were extremely grateful to Mr Sidney and Mrs Pye for all their support. Envirominies produce Anti-littering video for Wychavon District Council: We are very proud of the children who attend Eco Club for making a fantastic video persuading people not to litter because of the terrible effect on the environment. We are also extremely grateful to Mr Simpson and Mrs Hiskens for their expertise and agreeing to be part of the filming. Mrs Shiels had heard about the competition and was so inspired by the children’s suggestions, that she took on the challenge to make the video, with some IT support from Miss Hughes.

- Operation Christmas Child: The children were given a special assembly this week about the good work of the Samaritan’s Purse shoe box appeal. If you are happy to fill a shoe box over the half term holidays, please collect a decorated shoe box from the foyer. In Acorn class the children will also be collecting items to fill boxes in their ‘Shoebox Factory’ and we would be very grateful for any donations of spare items which they could use. Please return filled shoe boxes by Fri 13th November.
- Parent Questionnaire: Thank you for all the responses returned. Although today was the closing date for the paper copies, there is no cut-off date for registering your views on-line.
